Flintshire caravan park's £1m expansion plan recommended for approval

Post by Keith » 3 years ago



Plans for a £1m expansion to one of Flintshire’s most popular holiday parks has been recommended for approval.

Councillors will meet next week to decide whether to give family-owned Tree Tops Caravan Park in Gwespyr the go-ahead for an additional 52 static caravan plots.

The award-winning, five star site currently caters for 168 owner-occupied pitches during a March to December holiday season.

The proposed expansion – which would see the size of the site increase to 23 acres – aims to meet an ‘unprecedented demand’ for caravans.

It would also boost the local economy by more than £500,000, according to the holiday park.

A report to Flintshire council’s planning committee, whose members meet on Wednesday, said: “The scale of the extension should be balanced against the overall benefits attributed to this scheme.

“The proposals bring about a reinforcement of existing hedgerows and the reinstatement of lost hedgerows.

“A sympathetic scheme of additional tree planting is proposed which serves to ensure the proposals are well integrated into the wider landscape.

“The scheme serves to meet the increasing expectations which visitors have of the North Wales tourism industry and in this part of the county, this sector is a significant employer.”

It adds: “Although not a policy criteria, due to the sites proximity to the village of Gwespyr, local businesses such as the two public houses would be within walking distance to visitors to the site which would have economic benefits to the locality.

“The site is located in close proximity to the public footpath network in the area and therefore the scope exists to explore the local walks available.”

The caravan park was opened more than half a century ago by the farming parents of managing director Maureen Walker, who runs the business with her son Andy.

It featured in the National Tourism Awards for Wales 2015 having won a string of other awards last year including ‘Best Place to Stay’ in the caravan park category of the Flintshire Tourism Awards 2014.

The site also claimed the number one spot in the Wales in Bloom awards, and received the David Bellamy Conservation Award at its top gold level.
